THIS contemporary town house forms part of the well regarded Drill Hall gated development in the sought-after area of Hyde, close to the shops and services of central Winchester.

The warehouse conversion was completed at the turn of the century and is notable for its contemporary design and clever use of interior space.

The semi-detached property is situated at the end of the terrace and arranged over three floors, with well-proportioned rooms throughout. The design incorporates a number of contemporary twists which are sympathetic to the period style of the building, such as large Crittal-style windows.

On the ground floor there is a large integral garage with a utility room, store and wc.

On the first floor, the master bedroom spans the width of the property and has a Juliet balcony, fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. In addition to a family bathroom, there are two further double bedrooms, with one having access to the sunroom.

Stairs rise to the second floor, which has been designed to offer flexible, open plan living with exposed steel beams. The space opens onto a modern kitchen with a number of integrated appliances and a covered terrace.

The property has an integral garage and off-street parking available to the front. There is covered terrace on the second floor and the chance to create a roof terrace, subject to planning, with stunning views over Winchester.

The Hyde area of the city is desirable for its village like feel within a buzzing city. The area is just moments from the mainline station serving London Waterloo in under an hour, with the city centre, High Street and cathedral also close by.

The M3 offers excellent road access to London and the national motorway network and there are a host of excellent schools nearby.

The property is on the market with Hamptons International with a guide price of £1,250,000.
